On 27th September 2017, St. George's Society hosted our first Scholar Meet and Greet reception. The event brought past and present scholars together to engage with one another and talk about how the Society's Scholarship Program has impacted their lives. 

Since the Scholarship Program was established in 2008, St. George’s Society has awarded 314 scholarships to British and Commonwealth students at Lehman and Hunter Colleges.

As we approach the tenth anniversary of the program, we were excited to hear the successes of our former recipients and learn more about our 2017 scholars.

Ahmed, a 2017 scholar from Ghana is the first in his family to attend college. He remarked:

“Growing up in a less privileged community not only offered financial and academic challenges but also helped me realize the true value of a college education. This scholarship has lightened my financial burden, which will allow me to focus more on my studies and put me one step closer towards my dream of becoming a surgeon.”

After welcoming remarks by President, Philip Warner OBE, the Society’s Executive Director, Anna Titley, spoke about the rich history of St. George’s and gave some background on the establishment of the Scholarship Program. She commented:

“It is very gratifying to work for an organization that really does change people’s lives. We are incredibly proud of our commitment to education and hope that our scholars will remain part of the St. George’s Society community as they embark on their careers.”

On behalf of our scholars past and present, thank you for your continued support.
